DW celebrates 50 years of professional soccer in Germany

This summer, the Bundesliga will be turning 50 years old and Kick off! will be reporting on the history of the German top-flight every week. The first decade – the 1960s – was covered this past week and gave us some interesting talking points: Was Günther Netzer really the John Lennon of football? And should we consider Uwe Seeler the first big icon in Bundesliga history?

Each week in July, Kick off! will be covering a different decade on a journey through the history of professional soccer in Germany. New episodes are broadcast worldwide and online on Tuesdays.
